Thanks for posting. Please take a look at our 26-366 Vinyl Sash Pivot Bar. Do you think this might work for you? Make sure to match its dimensions with your own hardware.
A quick learner from Virginia says:
I have the same broken pivot bar marked 6247 and I did try the 26-366. It looks to be a fit and it does screw in but the 6247 has a total length of 3.19 inches. It is not long enough to engage in the slot. Is there an alternative?

I'm afraid we haven't been able to find a version of the 26-366 with a longer pivot bar. Would it be possible to move the pivot bar on the sash closer to the pivot shoe?
A quick learner from Brookfield CT says:
I also have the same problem. I need a 6247 pivot bar. Did anybody move the 26-366 out and drill the holes, to make up the difference and was it strong? I also can make one by hand from 5/8" key stock. A lot of filing!
A quick learner from Virginia says:
I did redrill the holes and I was able to get it to engage but had the problem that the body of the pivot bar was then going into the channel on the window and had some interference. I was able to squeeze it in but if I were to do it over, I'd grind down the shoulders a bit on the body of the pivot bar.
